Atorvastatin Gluten Free

I have celiac disease and want to know if Atorvastatin is gluten free. Thanks ## The composition of inactive ingredients can really depend upon each manufacturer of Atorvastatin. Some may or may not contain any gluten, but if you know the marking or imprint on your tablet, I can go ahead and look up a list of these ingredients for you. Any additional details on the pill's physical properties (i.e. shape, color) would also be good to have as well. Look forward to hearing back from you! ## I am a celiac and also take atorvastatin It is white and oval with MX on front and A15 on back. Dont know if that is enough info to b able to tell me.

can i reduce atorvastatin 20mg to 10mg

i am 74 yr old male. Chlorestrol normal, but on advice of Doctor. Wouldit be OK to reduce dosage to 10 mg? ## Hello, Nestro31! How are you? If your doctor has instructed you to lower the dose, it would be best to do as they've directed. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and joint/muscle aches. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My husband was similar, so he weaned himself off the Statin (I forget which one it was) couldn't get any logical answer from the doc as to why not. He now takes no statins, and cholesterol is non existant.

Atorvastatin New Study - Save your money - Please Read

A new NIH study just came out in finding that you can most likely stretch your dollar with the use of statins. "Alternate-day dosing of individual statins (especially atorvastatin and rosuvastatin) is as efficacious as daily dosing on LDL-C and TG." Source: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28741244 ## Thank you very much for posting this study and valuable information. Some other recent studies have found that concern about cholesterol levels is not as important as once thought. High levels don't always mean that someone is more prone to heart disease, or other issues, according to AMA studies. But, as with all other medical information, this could change at any given time, if more research turns up other findings. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Question: Could either of ...

Atorvastatin or Felodipine - blood thinner?

I'm getting a colon test done and can’t take blood thinners. Is Atorvastatin or Felodipine a blood thinner? Should I stop taking them prior to my test? ## Hello Ann, Technically no, neither medication is a blood thinner. According to DailyMed Atrovastatin is a medication to lower cholesterol and Felodipine is used to treat high blood pressure by blocking calcium and relaxing blood vessels.
